Funds help event take flight

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the NSW Government’s Regional Events Acceleration Fund would support the return of Wings Over Illawarra, which will introduce a new drone expo, flight simulators and dedicated aviation precinct.

“Wings Over Illawarra is Australia’s largest annual airshow and will bring together an exciting range of civil, commercial and military aircraft for an action-packed weekend both on the ground and in the sky on 27 and 28 November,” Mr Toole said.

Wings Over Illawarra Director Mark Bright said the funding had enabled them to expand on the range of exhibits and activities at the show to give more people the chance to experience a fantastic range of aerial activities.

“The NSW Government’s support will enable Wings Over Illawarra to make a very welcome return to the region and deliver an action-packed experience for locals, visitors and aviation enthusiasts,” Mr Bright said.
